26/11/2021 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

A brilliant two days! Thank you for such a comprehensive first aid programme. Feel like I’m ready for anything now!

Testimonial from James Barr, Teacher, Milnthorpe Primary School
23/11/2021 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

Andrew and Angie's stories of their experiences made it very interesting and made learning easier to remember. Both very friendly and happy to answer questions even if it meant going off planned topic. Best course I've done (done 8 over the years!) despite covid restrictions. Very relaxed and enjoyable but very informative.
Also, little touches such as sweets in everyone's individual pack and even a pen provided were very thoughtful.

Testimonial from Jennifer Cobb, Teaching assistant, Ambleside C of E Primary School
11/11/2021 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

The online course was good the way it was set out, easy to follow and not too much information before a test on it. In comparison to other courses this leader has a sensible practical attitude ( others have been scary stories of how could be sued if broke a rib doing cpr etc) The practical session was good as it was small numbers and good practical session, covering all areas we would need in a school setting. Again in comparison to some other courses I felt I was training to be a Dr not a First Aider.

I have been on first aid courses since I qualified as a nursery teacher when I was 18, I’m now 28, this was the best first aid course I have been on. It was full of knowledge, experience and I felt at ease throughout. . I would like to say a big thank you to you, Andy. I will recommend this course to anyone I know that may need one.

An excellent course, by far the best and most useful I've ever been on

Testimonial from Fiona Miller, Reception Class teacher
01/09/2021 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

Having attending many first aid courses this was by far the best as it was delivered by paramedics who had real life examples for all the medical conditions we studied. It was fascinating and kept us all engaged. The level of the equipment we used was excellent, the CPR dummies having a counter on then to see percentage of compressions and breaths was really helpful and interesting. We will definitely be recommending and using Kentdale in the future.Thank you both I feel confident and capable with delivering first aid.

I have just done 2 days of Paediatric First Aid at Kentdale. I couldn’t fault anything about the course. Both trainers were knowledgeable and clear and I feel so much more confident now dealing with any issues. The atmosphere was supportive and non-judgmental. I will be recommending this course to anyone looking for First Aid training. (The coffee was also great!)
Thank you.

Testimonial from Joanne Weaver, Preschool deputy manager , Burnside Preschool
22/04/2021 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

I have done many first aid courses throughout my teaching career and this is definately the best course I have ever done. I came away from the course thinking that I may be able to apply my skills if needed in any situation. Previous courses have left me wondering if I would remember to do the 'right thing' if I was ever in a position to use my skills. I definately feel so much more confident and that is down to your excellent approach and delivery. Thank you very much.

Testimonial from Sally Hill, PE Teacher, Cartmel Priory C of E School

Ross is an enthusiastic instructor who knows his subject so well. Any questions we had he was able to answer straight away. He had nice handy tips to help us when we are in difficult situations. I really enjoyed this course and in 3 years time, I will be booking with this company and hopefully Ross.

Testimonial from Karin Kingshott, Larksfoot Woodland Childcare
31/01/2021 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

The course was great value! Although it was intense I learnt so much over the two day period. Andrew was extremely knowledgeable.It was helpful that he could provide first hand examples of events he had been to, not just telling us how to help those injured. I was nervous about going amid the pandemic but it was so safe; we all had individual dolls and equipment to practice with, everything was throughly cleaned and there was an abidance of PPPE (masks, gloves, wipes etc).

Testimonial from Maisie Masterman, Dean Barwick Primary School

Testimonial from Holly Mills
05/08/2020 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

Even with the new social distanced format and all the problems that brought to running a practical first aid course it was still interesting and engaging. The set up had been thoroughly thought through so we all safely still got the most out of our two days, thank you.

23/01/2020 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

A thoroughly enjoyable 2 day experience led by 2 highly qualified professionals with a wealth of knowledge which they are happy to share and pass on.
I've learnt valuable lessons which I hope I will never have to put into practice, but feel able and confident to should the need ever arise.
It was so nice to be able to use modern training equipment and for there to be enough for everyone to gain plenty of hands on practical experience to feel sufficiently trained in all of the techniques.
Thank you again for a great experience I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your company.

Testimonial from Rebecca Varela, Nursery teaching assistant
06/12/2019 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

I had a great couple of days, it was fun, the tutor made me feel at ease and was able to answer everyone's questions, and if we weren't sure what he meant, he would do it practically. I enjoyed the scenario's, having to think what you would do, it that emergency.

Fantastic course ,taught in a fun enjoyable way . Luke is a very likeable guy . I feel that the way the course was delivered made everyone feel comfortable , lots of practicle , but this wasn't done in a way that made you feel uncomfortable ,lots of equipment meant we could work in pairs rather then watching each other. Thank you to Luke for making the course fun , and also giving us a good knowledge of first aid .

02/06/2016 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

I really was worried about my training in first aid as the idea of a test is not something I'm used to. But I can honestly say that I enjoyed this training. The trainer was professional and her calm manner and delivery of the information was clear and easy to understand.

Testimonial from Sue Randall
22/04/2016 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

This course was fantastic. Luke was a genuine guy who clearly demonstrated what was required and explained in different ways so we all understood. He showed passion in his work and related his demonstrations to things where they may be useful and then related them to how it would occur in our lines of work such as with children and the settings we would be in such as schools or at home (for childminders).

Being provided with a training handbook as part of the course was also very useful though and the homemade biscuits were a treat! Thank you.

Testimonial from Anita Marie McCullough
19/11/2015 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

Brilliant trainers! Best first aid course I've been on. Plenty of practical opportunities of possible relevant scenarios with good repetition of key skills. Great use of visual props which I haven't experienced before. Confidence building & a huge amount covered in the two days without feeling overloaded. Would definitely recommend!

Testimonial from Rebecca Hodds
20/09/2015 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

Thank you so much for providing an excellent course. I feel much more confident about getting involved and indeed had to the day after the course when two cars crashed outside my house. I wasn't quite expecting to use my DRSABC quite so soon! However, all went well and I was thanked by all involved so I must have done something right! Thank you! I can't recommend this course strongly enough.

Testimonial from Katie Convery, Year One teacher, Brunswick School
19/06/2015 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

Ross was such a positive, cheery teacher and made the learning of what can be a dry subject great. His approach to delivery was outstanding and he was very aware of making sure it was pacy to ensure he kept all our attention. Loved the fact that Ross gave us top tips and advice on improvisation if you don't have the relevant materials to hand. I learnt so much more from this course than I have on any other First Aid course I have attended. Many Thanks.

Testimonial from Natalie Horner, Lower School Leader, Penruddock Primary School
29/04/2015 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

A really thorough course. Good delivery from a knowledgeable and approachable trainer.

Testimonial from Pauline Porteus, Alston Primary School
07/01/2015 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

If it ever became possible (and compliant) to do a half day refresher every year and only the full 12 hours following any major changes to First Aid then this would be much more beneficial to already very busy teachers, who value the skills very much but find it a bit of a chore to do the full course over and over again! We loved Ross though - Thank you :-)

12/05/2014 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

I really can't praise the course and the trainer enough. If I am totally honest, I expected to be a little bored on a First Aid course but he made it really interesting. The course was delivered with an excellent balance of expert knowledge, practical involvement, group participation & positive energy. Thanks

Testimonial from Sarah Bulman

Testimonial from David Nattrass, School Business Manager, Morland Area C of E School
07/05/2014 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

I have reached the age of 49 and never done a First Aid course! This was mainly due to fear. However, I had no need to worry, the course was excellent and easy to follow in both theory and practice. Ross is a great guy, very enthusiastic ( which rubs off), clearly very knowledgable and a Fist Claas trainer. Over the years I have seen many bad ones! Maybe he should consider becoming a trainiing trainer. He is a good baker too.. 12 out of 10 , well done!

Testimonial from Nigel Heaton
27/01/2014 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Lakes First Aid

The course was really well delivered in a very relaxed manner. The trainer made you feel at ease and welcomed questions and comments and you were not made to feel silly. There was a good balance between practical and theory and the information was presented in a way that you could easily remember.

17/10/2013 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

The course was brilliant. There was absolutely the right balance between seriousness and humour and I was sad that it was only a two day course as I would have happily come back for the rest of the week.I now feel confident that I and my colleagues could deal with anything that presented itself at school or in another environment in a calm and professional manner and that I would be able to help someone in need of first aid without causing more harm. I have learnt so much in two days and the balance of practical and theory means I will remember all the important bits. A fantastic course - I would thoroughly recommend it for anyone who works with children.

Testimonial from Michelle Woodcock
05/01/2013 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

12/12/2012 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

The course instructors were extremely good, I felt reassured that i was learning the correct responses to accidents as they are fully trained professionals (unlike some previous first aid courses I have attended - not with Kentdale!)

A big thank you to the instructors who made the course interesting and accessible whilst relevant at the same time!

Testimonial from Lucy Stanway
08/12/2012 — 'Paediatric First Aid' course by Kentdale First Aid Training

I really enjoyed the course as everything was explained clearly and in terms we could understand the tutors were friendly and put us at our ease.

Course tutors were excellent. Lots of equipment, which meant nobody had to wait their turn in practical sessions. All aspects of first aid with relation to the work place were covered. Would definately want to do my refresher with this company/tutors.

The best first aid course I've ever attended. Both trainers were very knowledgeable, had lots of first hand experience relitive to all situations. Andrew & Angy complimented each other with a balance of humour and professional seriousness but instilling the importance of the skills being taught, giving us plenty of hands on practice and confidence to act on this knowledge in the future.

A very enjoyable and informative course. The information was delivered clearly with plenty of opportunity for questions and discussion, with really useful practical teaching and practise scenarios. The course trainers were friendly, reassuring and approachable with a great deal of knowledge and experience in emergency first aid.
Highly recommended.

This was a very well organised and informative course covering many if not all area's of first aid we may require working with children. The handbook which accompany's the course is very clear and informative. Both course leaders were very approachable and had excellent experience. I have already recommended them to friend's who require first aid training.

Andrew and Angie work very well together and delivered a really good course. They were very helpful and answered any questions. I feel much more confident in my first aid abilities now and would definetely recommend them to other practitioners who need to do a paediactric first aid course.

Dave made what can be a very dry subject interesting and at times he made it entertaining making it fun to learn and more easily absorbed.

this course was better than any 1st aid course i have ever attended. I think that because the tutor is actively practisng his information was relevant and up to date. The things I was taught felt like they were much more common sense based. Previous courses I have attended have left me thinking that there was no way I would attempt to give 1st aid through worrying that i may get the breaths wrong or tie a bandage wrongly or forget to check pockets!! This course left me feeling that I would happily 'give it a go'. The tutor was focused, accommodating and welcoming. The venue was easy to get to and the refreshments were delicious. The video clips helped to make real life situations more relevant. The 1st aid book we were given is very useful too. Thank you very much. Lydia

I thought it was a very good course. I felt the information given was well broken down making it easier for me to remember information. It was a good mix of teaching visual, talking and action.

Very Interesting course, very different from previous 1st aid courses. The focus on airway makes the course more realistic and makes you think that by checking this on a casualty you can really help save a life.

The course was very useful, full of common sense and practical sessions and ideas. There was plenty of time for additional concerns to be shared, aired and resovled.I felt that we learnt & consolidated more due to continual assessment rather than trying to memorize satisitcs & facts for a test at the end. Thank you

It was very enjoyable, usually I feel very nervous about these courses but the instructors put us at our ease and were willing to go over anything you didn't understand. I especially liked the mini talks we did on the various illnesses and conditions.
